Security apparatus is on high alert at Kandla port, Mundra port, and other key installations in Gujarat's Kutch district after intelligence inputs of a possible infiltration by terrorists through the sea route, local police said on Thursday.

The move comes days after the Navy warned of a possible terror attack from the seaside. Both ports are located in the Gulf of Kutch, close to Pakistan. The region also supports many critical installations, including the world's largest oil refinery at Jamnagar, run by Reliance Industries, and another refinery operated by Russian giant Rosneft at Vadinar.
